The Indo-Greek kingdoms were a series of kingdoms spanning modern-day Afghanistan, into the classical regions of the Punjab of the Indian subcontinent (northern Pakistan and northwestern India), during the last two centuries BCE and were ruled by more than thirty kings, often ruling contemporaneously. The state of the evidence does not currently allow modern scholarship to state securely which ruler succeeded which and where exactly their respective dominions are to be localised. The period of the kingdoms drew to a close ca. 10 CE after the joint reigns of Strato II and Strato III and the rise of the Kushan Empire in India.
